Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Denny Richard. Whenever someone asks me, “What do you do?” I answer, “Whatever I want!” I am a hiker, camper, backpacker, cyclist, yoga teacher, personal trainer, gardener, life coach, tree-hugger and cook. I love being outdoors in nature. Walking along a trail in new-to-me areas is one of the most exciting things I can think of doing. I work part-time at a recreational equipment store which keeps me on top of the latest gear with a great understanding of what is fluff and what is important.
If you are just beginning your backpacking or hiking adventures, Welcome! I have to say that hitting the trails has been one of the most consistently rewarding experiences I encounter. For those of us who have spent some time on the trail, it goes without saying how magical those moments are that keep us going back. With this blog, I hope to inspire, educate and share ideas of what trail life is like.
